I am planning to upgrade my PC and to buy some new parts and I want to make sure that I can skip the physical TPM header on the motherboard so I can compare more motherboards and options. I find it quite difficult to find any with TPM headers actually, not to say that no homepage I shop on give me the option to sort their stock for the TPM option.
As I understand it from different forums, Intel's website and Microsoft's homepage regarding TPM, so is the following needed to get Windows Hello to work (which uses a TPM):
- a chipset with Intel® Platform Trust Technology (Intel® PTT)
- a processor which supports Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT)
Is that all or can the motherboard manufacturer also have some input on this so I could end up with a motherboard without any support for theses features regardless of those technologies being incoperated?
